Marine aircraft ferries Americans from South Sudan

Published: 01.03.14, 20:07 / Israel News

The Pentagon says Marines used a KC-130 cargo plane to evacuate about 20 Americans from the US Embassy in Juba, South Sudan, in a move prompted by what the State Department calls a deteriorating security situation.


Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Steve Warren says the KC-130 flew from Entebbe, Uganda, on Friday, picked up the Americans and returned to Entebbe. He said that Two KC-130s made the trip but only one landed. (AP)
